You will be disappointed. The 430 is not gaming card. Buy a used Nvidia 260, 280, 460.

Edit: i keep forgetting you need a low profile. Find the money for the 7750 low profile

How about this SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Expr... $70
Ok, I am now in a rush to get a new card because mine just died last night. I'm just going to quickly get this one that you suggested. Thanks for all of your opinions!

Ok, the HD 6670 arrived today, I wasn't super impressed but I'm just glad that most of my games run at a higher quality with no lag. The only problem I have now is my CPU speed is not fast enough to run NFS The Run with no lag. I guess I'll just keep saving up. Thanks for all of your opinions!

It should run in circles around your 8400GS...maybe your CPU needs some upgrading on its own.
